Arles 2012: Christophe Berthoud, Alinari

Christophe Berthoud, an art historian specializing in photography, graduated from the ENSP in 1992. Today he has been invited to revisit the work of the Alinari between 1852 and 1920. Berthoud decided to account for the diversity of the themes and genres approached through the combinational process developed by the writer Italo Calvino in his book of stories The Castle of Crossed Destinies. The year 2012 marks the 160th anniversary of Alinari foundation, based in Florence. That makes Alinari the oldest photography studio in the world. A place alive with memory, Alinari continues today to play a major role in the world of photography, as a publisher, museum, collection of photographs acquired since the 1930s, and as an online image distribution agency.
